Don't tell 19-year-old Nail Yakupov that it's only the first week of the NHL season.

The first overall pick in the 2012 draft has had quite a debut for the Edmonton Oilers. After scoring his first career goal Tuesday against the San Jose Sharks, Yakupov did one better two nights later against the defending Stanley Cup champions.
